people, combined i.q. of a couple hundred. anyway, the notion we have a deficit in china is wrong. we actually have a surplus. why? san francisco in july of last year estimated 55% of chinese imports have american content. in other words, offshore. if you take that figure from the chinese figure, up goes the u.s. by 220 billion. a good example of that is apple. iphone and ipod are made in china. however, 66% u.s. content and 3% chinese or which i'm sure is taiwanese. so why are these figures not been taken into account? >> i think this story with all due respect is vastly overblown. ken kramer at you see irvine has been the best research into that. the real issue is not u.s. or china. it's japan and taiwan that they end up getting more value-added. when you look at trade numbers, they trade system when apple sells ip or experts, that's included in the trade system. when we moved apart to china to dissemble, that's an exporter. the whole thing is included as an import. so i do think those numbers are anywhere near as for this you would suggest. >> okay. i think we are going to end this
. for the spectator in a a row, china is our major export destination. remarkable growth they are since 2005 exports to china have been growing by 25% annually and they are now our top export market. if you look at what we're sending to china, no surprise it's dominated by and cotton. they have accounted in recent years as much as three quarters of total trade to china. but if you look at not minor, but still quite large exports for things like wars screens, corn for example, if you look at steve, distilled or dried grains other red meats, ec does are showing growth figures as well. in terms of overall exports, values are up for most of the commodity categories. again, these are experts on night fiscal year basis. you can see for most of these categories with one exception being core and, but largely the fair price driven events. we do see volumes up for some categories, but for most individual commodity categories we see lower volumes. the drought obviously having some effect but for most of the commodities being offset by higher prices for values thereof. the big difference though is this horrid a
a hobby. >> host: you have some of that in the book. taking it to china taking it to palestine, how did you write a play, go through all you had to go through three different governments to do and what it and what was the reception and most respected areas? >> guest: in china one of my former students was there so that was the accident. i had visited her and she was fluent in chinese. she was there for a long period of time and she had seen danny glover before. i had written a script at that time. he read the script and she said well look, why can't we do this in china? it would really be a great impact to bring king. so the national leader of china. >> host: what year is this? >> guest: this was 2007 and we performed it in the theater less than two miles from tiananmen square. >> host: in chinese? >> guest: in chinese. we were performing the birmingham protests with the chinese martin luther king and all of this is taking place before packed audiences within walking distance of tiananmen square. so translating king's legacy and ringing a gospel choir you know -- and i have actually thr
the south china sea to the eastern mediterranean to keep the world's energy market stable. now this has been helped quite significantly by the increase in our own domestic production. it's no accident that is as the iranian oil has gone off-line because of our sanctions other sources have come on line so iran cannot in a fit from increased prices. then there is human rights and our support for democracy and the rule of law. levers of power and values we cannot afford to ignore. in the last century the united states where it led the world in recognizing universal rights exist and that governments are obligated to protect them. now we have placed ourselves at the frontline of today's emerging battle like the fight to defend the human rights of the lgbt communities around the world and religious minorities wherever and whoever they are. but it not a coincidence that virtually every country that threatens regional and global peace is a place where human rights are in peril or the rule of law as we. more specifically places where women and girls are treated as second-class marginal human beings.
situation. in china, they capitalize on this. as i said, it's all about preserving the power is the contrary continues to grow. they threw aside the vestiges of communism a long time ago. in north korea, it is all about preserving of the military and the dynasty that you have there. it really has nothing to do with what i think karl marx had a division way back. it has to do with a fascinating book on how communism was moved into asia. it is an absolutely fascinating split that occurred. >> keith richburg on 34 years of reporting and insight from around the world. sunday at 8:00 p.m. on c-span's "q&a." >> stanley mcchrystal retired from the army in 2010. the former commander has written a memoir. he talks about his book in the library in philadelphia in january. this is one hour. [applause] >> thank you very much. thank you for coming out. i think it is a wonderful opportunity for the gentleman sitting next to me. and it's kind of a great deal. for anyone who is paying attention to american foreign policy and military affairs, you know that ever since the attacks on 9/11, the united states
to increase to 20 to 34. obviously china decides that it's going to allow the viewing public to see and said they do control that and that's great surprise. they have their own standards of what they assert that to allow to be show in their theaters. i mention in my remarks that what has happened is despite the size of the country, very few theaters in china. recently the chinese decided this is something they want to provide for their consumers and build in opening up 10 new screened today in the country to the point where they have 11,000 a few sicko was a handful. so we're working on it all the time, going back and forth then again there some issues that come up, but we think it is an opportunity and i say this in a parochial sense, but our country has benefited tremendously over the years because of an american film industry. it doesn't mean every film are necessarily proud of. i was attending one of these festivals in australia, first trip to that country in an individual who is in the business started out by saying, i have a strong disagreement with your country and foreign policy. you
. she is earning her master's in applied sciences. originally from china, she has been in the united states for five years, helping in the engineering department. if you talk to her, you will see that she is pretty smart. she would like to stay here. she would like to invest her talents in america and maybe even start her own company. but she has seen too many of her friends with advanced degrees have to go home, despite sharing some of her aspirations of wanting to become part of this country. last year the house passed the bipartisan stem jobs act. we will hope the senate will join us this time. i look forward to feeling of realizing her dreams in our country. and our country reaping the rewards of her hard work and talent. whether it is college, the cost of day daycare, making life work for more families means reducing the economic insecurities plaguing so many working moms and dads. over the last 20 years, the world has changed. he it used to be that one could make a career in working for this company. the average worker stays at his or her job for about four years. median income
engaged in manufacturing these types of things in china. >> their other part that manufacture. we appreciate that investment. it says here we have $409 in this type of research going on. does that $400 billion annually, does that calculate with individual inventors put into the mix, or they just not part of the calculation? >> are probably not going to be significant percentage as measured by dollars but about 60% would come from private companies than 40% of the federal funded. >> were talking about private inventors and their impact on new discoveries. how is she placed them in terms of government programs coming up with something new, corporations coming up with something new versus the individual inventor community coming up with something new. >> if you look at the types of recruiters over the past 50 years, the invention of the transistor or art or not tended to be basic research programs that weren't in the minds of any one individual, even at the university, but typically a network universe be a people. >> the foundation isn't very significant portions made in creating som
'm particularly looking to china to join in that condemnation. they are a pivotal role in influencing north korea. that is an extremely dangerous situation. and the chinese have significant influence over it. we need them to use it. >> thank you, senator blumenthal? >> thank you, mr. chairman. i think each and every one of you for your service to the country and your extraordinary performance under very difficult conditions. not only fiscal conditions, but also you are caring for the men and women in uniform, it has impressed me beyond words. your dedication to them, whether it is health care or families. we often say that our people are the most important aspects. and you have lived that concept in the way that you have led by example. i am very grateful to you on that. i would like to ask in terms of people, you outlined the effects on tri-care. cuts of two to $3 billion, and that our health system may not be able to pay its bills. can you tell us very briefly what you see for the effects. the potential sequester our men and women in uniform? >> yes, i can talk about secretary hale adding to th
in provocative behavior. they are isolated themselves from the west of the world. russia and china, almost the whole world has condemned what they have done. as a result of that, it should be a great concern to the international community that they are continuing to develop their capabilities to threaten security. not only of south korea, but to the rest of the world. for that reason, i think that we must take steps to make very clear to them that that kind of behavior is unacceptable. >> are there any sort of steps you are contemplating taking? >> i think it is a combination of a number of things that we have to do. one is the diplomatic steps that have to be taken. bringing the security conflict together to condemn their actions is very important. to organize the international community to do that. this morning i talked with the defense minister of south korea and we both agreed that we must make sure that we made clear that we are going to continue to conduct exercises and deploy our forces in that area. we are going to continue to show the north koreans that we are fully prepared to de
an eye on china as well. it seems like the world has not gotten safer. the question to the navy and the other services, three simple questions. how do you decide the priorities that you are asked by the combatant commanders. these different missions. how do you make that decision in terms i priority when you only have limited access? also, are there areas of the world where cousins will be decreased because of this? and also, most importantly, what impact does this have on our national security and global security securities well? if you could address those and if anyone else would like to address it as well. >> the decision as to where we go is a debate, if you will, that we had with the joint staff and the secretary of defense. the outcome of that is my signal. this is what i have to to provide. it is called a global force management and allocation plan. it's where we distribute naval assets. what i've written, i have to be where the maritime crossroads are. that is in the strait of hormuz and the arabian gulf and the western pacific and down by the straits of malacca. so we d
